14 Years After His Death, Seuss’s Last Book Is Published
There is a new Dr. Seuss book about choosing a pet and it's absolutely adorable.
The book is entitled " What Pet Should I Get?" and it features the same brother and sister duo that we know and love from "One Fish Two Fish, Red Fish Blue Fish."
The never-before-seen picture book by Dr. Seuss is all about the life lesson of having to make up your mind, depicted through siblings trying to pick out a pet.
The text and illustrations of the book were found in the late authors home in 2013. His wife, Audrey Geisel, originally found the documents in 1991, shortly after Ted's death. She boxed up the belongings and they were not see again until 2013 when Audrey and a family friend were cleaning out his office.
The text and illustrations for the book were found nearly complete, with only the color of the illustrations needing to be completed.
“We believe that he wrote and illustrated What Pet Should I Get? somewhere between 1958 and 1962—as the brother and sister in the book are the same as those in his bestselling Beginner Book One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish which was published in 1960,” says Cathy Goldsmith, Seuss's former art director.
The original picture of the black and white manuscript were shared with Buzzfeed, and can be viewed here.
"What Pet Should I Get" is due to hit shelves on July 28.
